2009 328i X-Drive Tuneup

Purchased my BMW today! It has 80,000 miles I know a little high but the price was great and drove like new. Clean title also unlike many used Bimmers that cost more and have higher mileage plus a salvage title that are in my area. I know some maintenance will need to be done on any car. What should I start with? A local BMW mechanic said the transmission filter and fluid should be changed. Should that be the first thing I do once we thaw out of this ice age? Any other maintenance suggestions? Service records show regular oil and brake changes so need to worry about those at this junction. The car handles the mountain roads and high altitude of Colorado with ease. Since the car performs so well where I live they fetch quite a premium 3 to 6 thousand above national prices, that and the fact mountain driving is very harsh on cars I looked out of state. My car is sitting in New York and I am trying to contain my excitement. Cannot wait to take it to my house with its 3000 feet vertical gain and winding road leading to it. Pictures of the car to brag and just to prove I own it.

I do my transmission fluid every 50k miles or so, and the filter every second change. I certainly would do both on a car with 80k. Perhaps more important is the transfer case fluid and front / rear differential fluids. Those get changed every 30k miles on mine. There's very little fluid in the transfer case, and it takes all of the drivetrain load all of the time. The rear differential fluid is a PITA to change. There's no drain plug, so it needs to be vacuum pumped out before refilling.
